Gregg Allman will be honored during Saturday’s University of Georgia game with a special halftime performance.

The University of Georgia Redcoat Marching Band will perform a trio of the late Southern rock icon’s songs while recipients of the Gregg Allman Scholarship are recognized.

The scholarship was established in 2014 by Allman in partnership with the UGA Music Business Program. The Gregg Allman Scholarship Fund is awarded to students attending the Hugh Hodgson School of Music.

The game between the No. 1 ranked Georgia Bulldogs and the South Carolina Gamecocks will air on CBS; kickoff is at 3:30 p.m.
